2013 Mental Health Humor - Permanent Press Therapy  - Chato Stewart

Sign: Steam Study Suggests New Explanation for the cause of Anxiety!
Caption: Permanent Press Therapy
 
Chato’s Notes:
This cartoon is about anger too…the first caption I was working with was “rage against the washing machine” but when my wife did not get the reference to the group “Rage Against the Machine”…While I am no a huge RATM fanatic, i do like a few of their songs but, I figured if my wife does not get my jokes, no one else will!  So, I STEAMED lined it. The idea for it came about while I was reading something in the APA magazine about a study that seemed absurd on what might be a cause for Anxiety. It was like, NEW STUDY FINDS that “People are more Anxious when you tell them you are going to push them off a 50. Ft roof then if you are just Pushing people off a roof.” Or some silly study that the answer to the study was in the question itself.

t2013 Mental Health Humor Defusing Anger With Confusion by Chato Stewart Cartoon

Chato’s Notes:
Anger shows up in my cartoons a lot… It is said, that an artist “truth to their soul is found at the tip of Ink Quill” – Okay no one famous said that, I just made it up. What some one did say is: you write/draw on from what you know. I know self-hate, depression, rage, twisted thinking and very dark moments and I also know about recovery, I know things can get better, I know about hope, faith. I try to draw with a positive message, but the skeptic that’s inside me comes out. Still- my goal is to high-light the Mental Health condition in a way others can understand it, yes, as with the the cartoon…with confusion.

2013 Mental Health Humor - Tiggers do not bounce with seasonal affective disorder - Chato Stewart

SAD Tigger: Do you have any Meds?
Eeyore: <sad look on his face>
Caption: Tiggers do not bounce with seasonal affective disorder
 
Chato’s Notes:
Having 4 children, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read them the Many Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh and his friends. My kids always had more affection for Eeyore, Tigger, and Piglet. Well, Pooh was just Poo to them. Can I say that? For me, Eeyore = Depression; Tigger = mania; Piglet=anxiety. I would draw more of them, but it’s hard to poke fun at something so loved.

t2013 Mental Health Humor stop smoking by Chato Stewart Cartoon

Chato’s Notes:
“Socially Acceptable” was the only punch line I needed to draw this cartoon. Something about smile on the e-cig face says something else.
